Baby Raiden

Baby Raiden was born on October 15,2014.My last post was about our son Tristan and Marta's baby shower in Chicago.It seemed like a long two weeks until he was born!! So glad we have finally met our new grandson.We have been so busy that I never had a chance to share the news!.We went to Chicago twice in the past couple of weeks to visit with them.On our way to Chicago I remembered I had written to someone on Craigslist about purchasing a claw foot bath tub ( they lived in Chicago) for Marta and Tristan's bathroom. I rewrote the person and said I was in the city for the day and would like to see the tub.So after a while the man called me back about the tub.The bathtub was a really good price and we figured we would see it and buy it on the spot.The only problem was that we had my small sporty car and needed a truck to get the bath tub to my dad's house (where Tristan and Marta live).After trying to see who we could borrow a truck from we finally remembered you can rent a pick up truck at Menards (home improvement store) hourly for a good deal.So off we went to rent a truck after spending most of the day with Raiden and purchase the bathtub and the hard part was carrying this bathtub up to a second floor bathroom.I don't know how my husband and boys did it but they got it into the bathroom and by a miracle the bathtub fit in the spot(which was another challenge).My husband had built this bathroom years ago in the attic of my parent's home.When we lived there we had a mini size claw foot bathtub but the one we bought for Tristan and Marta was a full size claw foot tub.So this was the adventure the first day we met our grandson!!! Never a dull moment in our family.
